## Workspace Method ySimpleSpectrometer

### Description

Converts iy to y assuming a fixed frequency resolution.
This is a short-cut, avoiding yCalc, that can be used to convert
monochromatic pencil beam data to spectra with a fixed resolution.
The method mimics a spectrometer with rectangular response
functions, all having the same width (``df``). The position of
the first spectrometer channel is set to f_grid[0] + df / 2.
The centre frequency of channels are returned as y_f.
Auxiliary variables and jacobian s are not handled.
